We all know “King” Karl Hess as a megalomaniac, thin-skinned diva, and all-around, general purpose dickhead. Or as the Brits would say, “bell end.”
Well, good thing for NC State he also appears to be racist, and was a racist to a connected dude. And telling said connected dude he’d “like to see his Egyptian ass call a game” (connected dude is of Indian descent) has led the Swoffy Cabal to finally cut ties with Herr Hess.
Now, one might note that a dude so thin-skinned to allow that Corch/Gugs incident to happen in the first place shouldn’t be in any position of authority whatsoever. Certainly not if he wasn’t embarrassed the next day and didn’t issue a very public apology to all involved. Certainly not if he viewed himself as the victim, and held onto his hurted feelings for TWO F-CKING YEARS and gave Mark Gottfried a technical almost immediately the next time he officiated a Wolfpack game (a one-point NC State loss, naturally). But that would require a scintilla of common sense, you see. One wouldn’t expect to find that amongst the Swoffy Cabal. And sadly, I didn’t hear any public demands from the powers that be at NC State, either.
Again, good thing Herr Hess was a very stereotypical Falwell U man and was racist. And racist to the right/wrong guy. The world in which we live, people…
